TWRA develops wanted poster to seek information on eagle shootings

Posted: Updated:

 

(Times Free Press) - Hoping to learn who shot two bald eagles in Southeast Tennessee, state and federal wildlife officials are trying to spark public awareness the old-fashioned way — with wanted posters.

Dan Hicks, public information officer for the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency, said Tuesday the state, along with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, produced wanted posters to be distributed in post offices, public libraries, other public buildings and grocery stores throughout Southeast Tennessee.

Hicks hopes the posters will catch the eyes of passers-by and generate more information about the so-called eagle shooter.

Leads have been coming in following a reward offer, but the culprit or culprits are still at large, he said.

"We definitely received some leads. A lot of times information crawls out from under rocks you turn over," Hicks said.
